The Colorado Department of Transportation and A-1 Chipseal-Rocky Mountain Pavement will start two roadwork improvement projects on Monday.
The projects are expected to last through November, CDOT said in a news release.
Crews will seal cracks on:
U.S. Highway 160 in Montezuma County from the east end of Cortez to the top of Mancos Hill, five miles east of Mancos.Colorado Highway 145 in San Miguel County from Sawpit to Society Turn Roundabout west of Telluride.According to CDOT, workers will place a heated sealant into road cracks to keep water from seeping into the asphalt and causing erosion.
Work will be done Monday through Friday with hours from 30 minutes after sunrise to 30 minutes before sunset. Traffic may be reduced to a single-lane, alternating traffic. Work segments may be up to a mile long, with 15-minute delays possible. Speed limits will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone, and traffic fines may be doubled.
Travelers are urged to obey work zone signs and use caution.
